The Eagles clinch the No. 1 seed if the Vikings lose to the Packers on Saturday tonight. If the Vikings win, the Eagles will still be playing for something on Monday night when they host the Raiders. Either way, the Eagles won’t change their plans for Christmas night. That’s the word straight from Eagles coach Doug Pederson, who was asked by reporters if there’s a dual plan for whether the Vikings lose or the Vikings win. And it was literally the word. As in one word. “No,” Pederson said. The approach could be problematic, if the Vikings lose and if the Eagles are subjecting starters to potential injury for nothing.
